VR CAVE Specifications

- A cave automatic virtual environment (CAVE) is an immersive virtual reality environment where projectors are   directed to between three and six of the walls of a room-sized cube.

- The system is based on 4 projectors covering a front wall, 2 side walls and the floor.

- Each of the three screens has an image size of 15.5 ft x 9.68 ft.

- The full-size side screens produce a large horizontal field of view which is critical for an immersive environment, even when     moving around.

- ​​The ANSYS VRXPERIENCE software takes the predictive validation of vehicle systems to the next step by testing and optimizing   intelligent headlamp units, sensors, as well as your human-machine interfaces (HMIs).

How to Access the VR CAVE


The VR CAVE is located at the Institute for Border Logistics and Security (IBLS) building at 3475 Wheelton Drive, Windsor, Ontario.  It will provide companies the opportunity to test their technologies related to Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (C/AVs).  All participation requests for accessing the VR CAVE will be vetted by a review committee (selected by the WindsorEssex Economic Development Corporation) to determine eligibility.  If Interested in working together, click here.

Virtual environment testing is now a standard practice of large product development programs in the automotive, consumer products and aerospace sectors.  Facilities like Virtual Reality labs are useful because they enable the evaluation of a multitude of design and procedural alternatives, safely and rapidly and at much lower cost than the construction of functional physical prototypes.
